Panem et circenses

"Panem et circenses","Bread and circuses", "Pan y Circo" is a metaphor for handouts and petty
amusements that politicians use to gain popular support, common practice in the Roman empire,
and still used.

Here in Argentina, while the president Cristina Kirchner is sucking Chavez's cock in Venezuela,
his husband is supposedly preparing a multi millionaire deal with Julio Grondona, president of
the Argentinian Soccer Association, and Senior Vice-President of FIFA, to break unilaterally the
contract that assigns the Argentinian soccer transmission rights to a company called "Torneos y
Competencias (TyC)"

That would give free soccer to every Argentinian citizen, and will cost to the state 500 or 600
millions of Argentinian pesos, something like 125 million dollars.
That's being made while common people is paying 400% increments in their gas and electricity
bills, there is retired people with $300 gas bills and their salary is $700.

Great work Cristina and Nestor Kirchner, you are accomplishing with great success your goal to
be the worst thing that happened to Argentina after the military dictatorships.
